Collection of songs - how should I submit them?

Postby bobnotts » Fri Jul 13, 2007 10:50 am

Hello

I'm new to IMSLP but I'm a moderator of and regular contributor to CPDL (or at least I was until the server gave up :( here's hoping for a swift recovery!) I'm trying to get together my first scan but I'm not entirely sure how I should do it.

It is a collection of lieder and arias for bass (my voice part!) by many different composers. The title page is here: http://robertnottingham.com/03contents.jpg (compressed, of course). I have refered to this page: http://imslp.org/wiki/IMSLP:Score_submi ... Collection but it doesn't mention what to do with the title page etc. Should this be included with every separated PDF or with none of them?

Also, should the songs by the same composer be grouped together in one PDF or separate PDFs for each song?

Thanks for your help and for building such a useful resource which takes on the comercial sites offering PD electronic sheet music at a price. You stand for everything I believe when it comes to electronic sheet music, keep it up!

In this case I'd include it with the first file (and specify that the contents are included in the description), mainly because it seems to be large. Though really this is very much your call. :)

Also, should the songs by the same composer be grouped together in one PDF or separate PDFs for each song?


This depends on the length of the song and whether there are any natural groupings or not (song sets/cycles? they should be submitted to the same page in that case). The ideal file size on IMSLP is between 2MB and 6MB, but of course that is not always possible.
